The best freeskiers in the world will battle it out for $7,500 with the men's and women's overall U.S. Freeskiing Tour point leaders taking home $2,500 each. Over 60 men and 30 women are scheduled to compete at the Subaru Squaw Valley USA Freeskiing Open including freeskiing champions Cliff Bennett, Kevin O'Meara, Griffin Post, last year's men's winner Adrien Coirier and Tour Champion Jess McMillan. "Squaw is the perfect venue for a freeskiing contest: awesome terrain, great access, and perfect spectating spots. Not to mention, the local talent is unbelievable," said former U.S. Freeskiing Champion and Squaw Valley USA local Ingrid Backstrom. "The month of January has been epic here. It's shaping up to be excellent conditions for a contest. I can't wait to see everyone charging." For more information visit
